06-18 / Sacred Sonic Symmetry a Sound Healing Journey w/ Simon Samadhi

Come be a part of a mind expanding hour of immersive sonic exploration as we journey deep within the vast inner realms of Infinite Mind!

Simon Samadhi is a lifelong musician and lover of sound. He has been on a path of self development and inner exploration for over 20 years, during which he has explored many different modalities, including learning Reiki, meditation, and working with plant medicines. During these explorations he has cultivated a deep love and understanding of the healing and medicinal qualities of sound, that seems to be intimately entwined at a core level within every modality he has studied.

Over the years he has learned how to play many instruments, including guitar, Didgeridoos, Native American style flutes, Guzheng, gongs, crystal bowls, and more. Simon also channels unique vocals and sings using ethereal overtones during his meditative sound sessions. These sonic experiences are known to promote relaxation, healing and wellness on many levels from the physical to the psychological, including the processing and release of stuck energy in a similar fashion to working with psychedelic plant medicines, but with no substance required other than your open ears and open mind!

You quite literally need do nothing during this sound journey. Comfortable mats, pillows, and blankets are all provided and you are invited to simply BE!

1. SAT & SUN, AUGUST 21-22nd: SPIRITUAL FUSIONS Psychic & Holistic “Pop-Up” Expo (at WNC Ag Center)

Numerology with Michelle Payton


Spring: New Beginnings and Plantings,

Opening to the Possibilities

“When observing the cycles of the Earth, our physical and spiritual existence are keenly aware of the Earth shifts. We observe them by responding to the cycle as if we were a plant or animal. The theory is that our bodies are seventy to ninety percent water. What happens to water when seasons shift?

“Our physical bodies, even if we don’t recognize it, are going through similar transitions. If ignored, we get physically sick, have problems achieving goals, and more.”

“Spring is the Earth’s New Year and our bodies and experiences will have a tendency to match that of nature. Spring comes in gently, gradually and requires patience as we anticipate what is to come. How this cycle might affect you in-the-moment is as follows.


Cycle Theme: To renew.

Role: To prepare and gently set in motion.

Best at: New thoughts, ideas, growth and introductions.

Challenge(s): Being patient. Balancing the transitions of being docile to moderately active.


F – Strong time to develop new strategies, thinking and positioning.

I – Strong time to gently execute new ideas and learning from the reflective winter and prior cycles.

P – Strong time to awaken your physical body but not to shock it with too much activity (relative to the physical activity you currently experience).

So – Strong time to begin to re-introduce yourself to people you haven’t seen or talked to since the fall cycle.

Sp – Strong time to slowly open yourself up to new practices or re- introduce yourself to productive old ones.

Spring Observations: Ground hog and other animals begin to emerge, buds on trees and bushes, birds building nests, animals mating, baby animals emerging, indoor plants growing new sprigs, gardens/crops/fields are being prepared for planting and/or being planted, outdoor bugs are beginning to show themselves (in seasonal climates). What do you observe in your climate?

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8th: ALIEN SCRIPTURES: Extraterrestrials in the Holy Bible with Rev. Michael J.S. Carter


with Rev. Michael J.S. Carter

Thursday, October 8th

7:00 – 9:00 pm

Join Reverend Michael J.S. Carter as he explores the possibilities that the Bible, Koran, and other religious texts contain clues to visitations from extraterrestrials.

Reverend Carter’s Alien Scriptures: Extraterrestrials in the Holy Bible is written from the point of view of a man or woman in biblical times, anything that came down from the sky would be considered a god, or at least sent by the gods. Now consider what the site of modern technology, such as a helicopter or rocket ship, would do to the mind of a 1st century man or woman. The explanation of this type of phenomenon would probably sound an awful lot like what we find in civilization’s most sacred books.

Whitely Strieber, author of Communion: A True Story considered Alien Scriptures: Extraterrestrials in the Holy Bible to be, “the best book ever written on the subject.

Rev. Carter’s books will be available for purchase that evening!

Space is Limited! Tickets will not be sold at the door!

Michael Harner’s “Shamanic Divination”

by the Foundation for Shamanic Studies

November 2 & 3, 2019

Led by Marcia and Jack Hebrank.

One of the classic tasks of the shaman is to journey into nonordinary reality in order to obtain answers to questions, both at the request of others and for oneself. Participants in the workshop have the opportunity to engage in divination journeys for each other as well as for themselves and to gain experience in using various time-tested shamanic divination techniques. In the shamanic search to become persons of knowledge, they learn, as shamans have from time immemorial, how to converse with plant and animal spirits, how to learn about the use of quartz crystals, and how to seek and receive revelatory knowledge from visionary sources.

Prerequisite: the FSS Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman®, with an authorized FSS Faculty Member.

13 FSS Continuing Education (CE) Credits available

1. MICHAEL HARNER’S “Way of the Shaman” – Feb. 1 & 2

Michael Harner’s “Way of the Shaman”

The Basic Workshop in Core Shamanism

by the Foundation for Shamanic Studies

February 1 – 2, 2020

(9:30 am to 5:30 pm each day)


Led by Marcia and Jack Hebrank. In this experiential workshop, participants are introduced to Core Shamanism, the universal and near-universal basic methods used by shamans to enter non-ordinary reality for problem solving and healing.  Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey.  The shamanic journey is one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream.

Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature.  Practice includes sharing by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as being introduced to shamanic divination and healing.  Participants are also provided with methods for journeying so they can meet and study with their own individual spirit helpers in non-ordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice.

Participants learn how the journey is utilized to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to heal oneself, others, and the Planet.  This Basic Workshop is presented by the Foundation For Shamanic Studies faculty members, Marcia and Jack Hebrank.  Completion of the workshop qualifies participants to take the advanced FSS workshops and courses.

Prerequisite: None

Previous Months Forecast

WHAT’S UP – June 2022 by Belinda C. Dunn
Mercury Direct – June 3 @ 4:00 am
Sagittarius Full Moon SuperMoon -June 14 @ 7:52 am
Summer Solstice – June 21 @ 5:14 am
Cancer New Moon – June 28 @ 10:52 pm

Airy, light, fluid and free, June begins with Sun in Gemini, associated
with the element air. Daylight hours have been steadily increasing since Winter Solstice, and the peak of illumination is reached on June 21, the beautiful fulfillment of Summer Solstice. Frigid and fierce winter winds are long past. The soft, gentle, warming caress of a summer breeze touches the cheek and tousles the hair.

The seasonal shifts are palpable and real, especially heightened with Jupiter’s transit into Aries (May 10). This is very significant given that Jupiter has spent all year in Pisces. You may look back over the
past five months and notice the introspective, contemplative, floating and drifting sense of going nowhere fast.

One by one, three planets, Venus, Mars and Jupiter have taken their turn in conjoining Neptune. Otherworldly, dissolving the boundaries of consciousness, clearing the karmic slate, humbled and receptive, many people are ready to stand back up, and move forward based on alignment with higher and more rarefied frequencies.

Transiting over the world axis of zero degrees, Jupiter’s entrance into Aries represents a rebirth. As much as Pisces is receptive and passive, Aries is energetic and active. Take to heart the insights and revelations of recent months, no matter how abstract or hard to put into words. The cosmic tide has turned, and Jupiter in Aries is leading the way for each and everyone.

In general, Jupiter is the planet of expansion, growing whatever it touches. This can mean many things, but at its core, Jupiter’s beneficial rays instill a willingness to learn and explore. Now in Aries, the uptick of energy can be summed up in the word VERVE, best defined as vigor, enthusiasm, vivacious, get-up-and-go. Jupiter has a twelve year cycle, and it may be helpful to recall the last time Jupiter transited through Aries; June – September 2010, and again in 2011, January – June.

Adding to this major shift is passionate and mobilizing Mars transiting through Aries (May 24 – July 4). In Aries the entire month, Mars just conjoined Jupiter on May 29, but the repercussions continue to unfold.
For most people, this will be an enthusiastic rebirth of focus and drive, a felt sense that now is the time to get ahead, and gain traction to manifest goals. But for others, this planetary combination ups the ante, pouring more fuel on the fire. There may be no escaping the intensity and necessity to get moving in new directions.

However, there is a delay factor built into the cosmic plan, such as Mercury retrograde. As humans tend to be impulsive and hard-headed, Mercury makes sure that all details are in place for progress, and
decisions are in alignment with destiny. June begins with Mercury being within days of completing a retrograde phase that started May 10th.

When Mercury goes direct in the early morning hours of June 3, it is in Taurus, squaring off with Saturn. Adding to the drama, shortly thereafter, Saturn goes retrograde on June 4. This combination, in and
of itself, signifies extreme differences of opinion, perception and logic. Communication may be loaded with prejudice, and decisions involving others may reach an impasse.

Saturn typically brings a realistic, bottom line approach, and does not shy away from discussing the hard truth. Many people will not approve of or like what they are hearing/seeing. All sorts of issues will be
breaking loose in a definitive, without a doubt, upset. The impulse is to talk it out, but this can lead to circuitous debate that gets nowhere. Better to let the dust settle, because forcing others to see one’s point of view only increases resistance.

In terms of decisions, on May 9, Mercury went retrograde in Gemini, symbolized by the twins looking toward each other in agreement, or looking away in opposite directions. Therefore this retrograde phase has been characterized with indecisiveness, duality or duplicity. As Mercury goes direct it returns to Gemini on June 13, allowing for elaborations and more information to come forward. Additionally, Sun is transiting through Gemini, so exchange of information is paramount in effectively moving through obstacles.

This brings us to a Full Moon SuperMoon on June 14. This is a particularly energized culmination of recent months, if not years. With Sun in Gemini, and Moon opposing in Sagittarius, this lunation activates
very sensitive degrees in the USA astrology chart, Mars in Gemini in stressful square to Neptune.

To back up for a moment, the transiting lunar nodes were in Gemini/Sagittarius from May 2020 through January 2022. Gemini is the messenger and storyteller, Sagittarius is the more abstract content of
belief and ideology. At their best, these zodiac signs are impartial in delivering objective information. In combination with Neptune, to a large degree, this trend helps to account for extreme viewpoints,
confusion of facts with fiction, blind patriotism, and the plethora of misinformation.

Considering the 1/6 Commission is scheduled to begin public hearings on June 9, all these factors come together to bring everything out in the open. The timing is impeccable and laser-like as repercussions ripple across the country and reverberate around the world.

The next day, June 15, Mars conjoins Chiron in Aries, energizing the archetypal wounded healer. This combination does not allow us to rest on our laurels, but underscores an on-going healing process of self
reclamation. Especially beneficial is the clarity and strength to stop and drop depleting habits patterns. To optimize Chiron, it is a matter of coming out of denial by admitting painful aspects of one’s past that
may be lingering in the energy field. The next step is cultivating and accepting healing, however it shows up in the present.

Moving on . . . the tide turns on June 21st, the longest and most light filled day of the year, Summer Solstice. It just so happens the Sun is rising over the east coast, shining the solar spotlight on Washington
D.C., and highlighting domestic issues on a national level. Additionally, Saturn is overhead, very close to the USA Moon in Aquarius. Numerous factors point to these summer months as pivotal for the nation as a whole.

The solstice chart shows Moon in Aries in its last quarter phase. Additionally, Moon will transit over Jupiter, Chiron and Mars, all in Aries. Accentuating the potency of this seasonal turning point, themes
revolve around one’s personal domestic setting as well as the independence and self-sufficiency of Aries.

The month wraps up with a New Moon in Cancer on the evening of June 28, symbolized by a crab burrowing in the sandy tides, flowing with the rhythm of land and sea.  Instinctual and protective, this is an excellent time for retreat. Typically, focus goes to home improvements, landscaping, gardening, food preparation, family relationships, and perhaps stay at home vacations. In general, any new moon is optimal for setting goals, preparing and planting seeds of intention for the next cycle.

Earlier in the day, Neptune goes retrograde instilling a creative, imaginative, inspirational and transcendent atmosphere. At 25 degrees, Neptune is orbiting through the later degrees of Pisces now, and will remain retrograde until early December. This planet of illusion, confusion and disillusionment has been playing havoc with everyday sensibility.

Neptune’s more disturbing tendencies have been allowed to run rampant, and can be seen in the proliferation of scams, outright lies, illicit drugs, mental illness and mass psychosis. The station point (June 23 – July 4), suggests a reversal in direction with the possibility to see through these distortions. Invoking and expanding awareness is the first step in recovery across a wide spectrum of human ailments, personally and collectively.

Finally, within all the pushes and pulls of planetary influences, what is the optimal direction? In part, the answer to this question takes us back to the lunar nodes, in particular the North Lunar Node in Taurus
(January 2022 – July 2023). In essence, Taurus is the most fixed and stable zodiac energy. After the chaos of recent years, a majority of people, to one degree or another, find themselves yearning and working
toward increased security and stability. Think of the Taurus bull grazing comfortably in a luscious, green pasture.

On the other hand, when people, individually and in groups, are disenchanted and fueled by rage, this dynamic easily becomes a tinder box ready to ignite, a lethal combination. Perhaps society has reached a
dividing line between those fighting for change, willing and capable of using violence, and those fighting for change through constructive channels. One response is loaded with angst and drama, the other
response, for the most part, is drama free.

North Lunar Node in Taurus suggests: Enjoy the simple treasures of day to day existence. Life doesn’t have to be so complicated. It’s okay to slow down. Discover and cultivate beauty. Spend time in nature. Share a heartfelt hug, a sincere smile. Now is the time to be an instrument of peace. Generosity and gratitude make all the difference in the world.
